Patton to build supermarket in Salford
Published:  28 October, 2011

LANCASHIRE: Patton Construction is to build a 12 000m2 supermarket in Salford for Tesco. 

The Co Antrim builder is expected to start work in the first quarter of 2012 on the £45m Tesco superstore.

The contractor, which also operates from a base in Milton Keynes, recently built Tesco's first green store in Ireland, picking up a Tesco Blue Award – the company's top building accolade for delivering the 26-week contract six weeks early.

Patton also completed its first English design-and-build timber frame environmental Tesco store in Berwick-upon-Tweed last year, worth around £5m.

The proposed store in Pendleton will follow the Tesco Environmental Store Format. It will be built using a glulam timber frame with a total building performance target of BREEAM 'very good'.

Rooflights will allow more natural daylight into the store and a combined heat and power plant will generate electricity and make use of the waste heat.

The 24-hour superstore will be built above extensive underground parking with the first LED lighting in a UK store.
